Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney

10% Discount on Wills

to clients who live in Nettleham and the surrounding villages or are over 60.

Making or amending a Will:

Marriage generally means that your existing Will is revoked. Separation or divorce will mean that your priorities have changed, and you should revise your Will.

If you do not have a will, we strongly advise that you have one prepared.

An up-to-date Will ensures that your dependents are taken care of to the best of your ability and your remaining assets are passed onto the people who you want to receive them.

JGQC Solicitors have an experienced and capable team of Will experts who can take the hassle out of how to make your Will off your mind, this allows you to be at ease knowing your assets will eventually fall into the hands of loved ones.

If you do not have a Will, your assets will be distributed according to current law and when you have been involved in a divorce and re-marriage, this may not be what you necessarily would have chosen. It may also be the cause of inter-family disputes and distress as well as unnecessary delay and avoidable friction.

Making a Will with JGQC Solicitors is simple. We can arrange an initial free consultation to outline your major assets, we can then advise you on the best solution and the next steps you should take.

If you are recently separated, divorced or re-married, then you may want to change or update your Will according to your current circumstances. As always, JGQC Solicitors are here for you to guide you in every step of the way. 

JGQC Solicitors can make Will writing a simple and straightforward process.

We offer a 10% discount on Wills to clients who live in Nettleham and the surrounding villages.

Lasting Powers of Attorney:

A lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a way of giving someone you trust (called your Attorney), the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf should you lose the mental capacity to do so.

There are two types of LPA’s

  • Property and Finance 
  • Health and Welfare 


LPA’s for Property and Finances can be used while you still have mental capacity or you can state that you only want the LPA to come into force if you lose mental capacity.

An LPA for financial decisions can be used to cover things such as:

  • Buying and selling property
  • Paying the mortgage
  • Investing money
  • Paying bills
  • Arranging repairs on the property


If you are setting up an LPA for financial decisions, your attorney must keep accounts and make sure their money is separate from yours. You can ask for regular updates of how much money you have. 

LPA’s for Health and Welfare covers your health and your welfare, decisions can only be used once you have lost mental capacity. An attorney can generally make decisions about things such as:

  • Where you should live
  • Your medical care
  • What you should eat
  • Who you should have contact with
  • What kind of social activities you should take part in


You can also give special permission for your attorney to make decisions about life saving treatment.


Do Not Assume

If you are married or in a civil partnership, you may have assumed that your partner would automatically be able to deal with your bank account and pensions and be able to make decisions about your healthcare should you lose the ability to do so. This is not the case, without Lasting Powers of Attorney, they will not have the authority.
